Mrs. Virginia American 2020

Dhomonique Murphy made history July 10, 2020, when she was crowned the very first Mrs. Virginia American, in South Hill, Virginia. Dhomonique is a 3x Emmy Award-Winning television host and journalist, The President of The Right Method, LLC ( and the founder of a nonprofit, Readers2Leaders ( She is also the author of three books: A cookbook, a motivational book and a children's affirmation's book. She also has a children's virtual television show premiering this winter. Dhomonique is married to her best friend, Frank, and they have two young children: Christian and Christopher. 


As a mother of two children and the daughter of two educators, Dhomonique finds it fundamental to ensure all children have access to books. 1 in 4 children in America grow up without learning how to read, which leads to high dropout rates. Nearly 80% of crime is committed by high school dropouts. Each dropout, over his or her lifetime costs the nation more than $250,000, and creates a gap in society. Through her nonprofit, Readers2Leaders, she and her team have delivered thousands of books in the form of Kindle e-readers to dozens of children in 3 major U.S. cities. Dhomonique is currently working to partner with Amazon and libraries across the state to grow her initiative to reach children across the state of Virginia and across America. 


Success is inevitable with the right combination of skills, drive, and connections. Dhomonique has it all! She started working as a TV host at age 14 in Minneapolis, and has since worked all across America and developed deep connections with the ‘who’s-who’ of entertainment, motivation, sports and education. She has connections to HSN, Shark Tank, Steve Harvey, the famed motivational speaker Brian Tracy, numerous local television affiliates, and many of the biggest movers-and-shakers in business including: Alec Stern, Jeff Hoffman, Kevin Harrington, Mitzi Perdue, Dan Clark and more! In fact, Dhomonique was hand selected to be on the Steve Harvey show to surprise Steve during his birthday special, seen by more than 24 million people; his most watched episode to date!


As for, Dhomonique created the virtual motivational self-help company, as a way to help people rediscover their love for life. During her nearly 20 years as a television host, anchor and journalist, Dhomonique quickly discovered that everyone wants the same five things: love, purpose, health, financial independence and respect. It may look different for each person, but those core principals of fulfillment are what everyone truly desires to obtain. The reality is, however, that most people are going through life, confused and frustrated, looking for a specific method or formula to achieve ultimate happiness and success. Years of careful study brought Dhomonique to the conclusion that the idea of a one-size fits all approach to obtaining fulfillment is flawed. Hence, the creation of The Right Method. The Right Method is a paradox. There is no right method. You have to, “Find what’s RIGHT for you,” as the slogan states. The Right Method was created to give people the tools to live life to the fullest. The brand connects its audience with the world's most recognized and sought after thought-leaders in business, motivational and holistic living, through in-depth interviews on various platforms, including The Right Method Internationally Syndicated Podcast. The Right Method allows the viewer to find inspirational material that resonates with them. The Right Method is here to educate, motivate, inspire, and support.
